Why hello, blog, it has been quite some time! Too long, really. I’ve missed updating, chatting with all of you, and sharing new work over the past month or so. I’ve been very busy, though! Since November I have been basically making embroidered portraits non stop (thank you guys for all of the word of mouth, really!), I’ll share some of them with you soon so you can see what’s been keeping me busy.
In the meantime though, I did manage to get this cat riding on a bike done.
I made this piece for an art trade I did in exchange for a couple of ceramic teeth beads. She ask for a cat riding a bike, and this is what I came up with. The fabric is white, and I hand dyed it using red tea (the same as I did for the skeleton, hand, and teeth pieces), I did the embroidery all in a solid black. This is actually a pretty small piece- only 4 inches. I think the big front wheel gives the illusion that it is bigger than what it actually is.
